I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

Therapy is the most important gift you give yourself, and I encourage you to choose a therapist who is a good match for your needs. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, relationship problems, work-related stress, and abusive relationships--just to name a few. My approach to treatment is primarily present focused, because I believe that unresolved issues from our past end up repeating themselves in our current relationships. Together we will explore the ways that your thoughts, feelings, and actions affect your mood and the way you experience the world.

I approach my clients with interest and compassion, creating a relationship that fosters deeper self-awareness, personal effectiveness, and meaningful change. The relationship developed in psychotherapy is an important resource, because it offers an opportunity to directly examine and explore these issues. I work with you to explore how your family history, life experience, and current stressors contribute to the issues that bring you to therapy. For people confronting infertility and other medical issues, I offer support with decision-making, stress reduction, and working through feelings of loss. Third-Party Reproduction services are also available, including donor evaluations and recipient consultations.

I am a psychologist and psychoanalyst, in practice for 18 years. I see individuals, adolescents, and couples. Psychotherapy is, as I see it, an opportunity to address unresolved issues and conflicts as they arise in the here-and-now of life and in the therapy relationship. For this reason, it's important to look at the various ways and places where symptoms show up and work to understand the underlying meanings of these. This approach can take some time but its rewards include a depth of self knowledge and a more rich and meaningful life with oneself and with others.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.

I have had the privilege of witnessing people undergo the slow, extremely subtle and remarkable journey of healing and self-transformation. This process of psychological growth is astoundingly complex, multilayered, circular and even mysteriously numinous in its unfolding. My philosophy as a therapist is primarily on core transformation rather than merely symptom management and needless to say, I strongly believe in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as a significant healing agent. Moving towards our wholeness necessitates the courage to first move into the wounded parts that we all have as members of the human species.

With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Northwest, Portland can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
